I came in from tending to my hives over an hour ago, so hot and sweaty it took me a full hour to make absolutely sure I wasn’t dying of heat stroke.
I stumbled into the house and ripped off my bee suit like someone on fire. Then I lay on my fainting cushion in the drawing room, wondering why I ever took up beekeeping.
No, this morning’s visit to The Girls wasn’t a bit fun. Even worse, I hurried my inspection along without spending enough time to make sure everyone was okay. Ieven turned a blind eye to a Small Hive Beetle scuttling along one of the frames. For shame!
After being fairly certain I was going to live, I made a momentous decision. I was going to throw frugality to the winds and buy one of those $260.00 “Ultra Breeze” bee suits I’ve been eyeing since last May. Gosh darn it, next week is my birthday and I deserve to buy myself something pretty!!
And boy, is this suit pretty! A veritable wonder of the bee suit makers’ art!!
The Sting-Proof yet breezy fabric is ingenious!!
I’m so excited! Happy Birthday to Me!!
